I think the tree is called a monkey tail, it's a neat looking one
We have three in my area that I am aware of, but I have never seen them fruit before! Is it more like a pine cone, or like a type of fruit?
I would say kinda like a pinecone from the pic I will look there, and man there is a TON of dove around town this year, I've seen them around but seen more in last few days then I did in entire 3 years of photo taking heh.
Weather may have made the flock relocate, our vultures do that sometimes. This year we have banned-tailed pigeons, I have never seen them here before. I think you posted a photo of one this year as well! It makes me wonder what has changed.
True, I've seen them around a tiny bit but I think I've posted all my dove pics, but ave this one other day, and like 3-4 today in different areas.
I've always thought monkey trees were weird looking. But great for photo subject matter.
